Mom and Pop resort

9 posts in this topic

I am looking for a mom and pop style resort for July or August. It will be just my girlfreind and I and we are looking for something nice but affordable. She will fish for a while but, we will most likely be golfing, and checking out the local attractions and shopping areas as well. Any help would be appreciated.

Gravelle, every resort on Kab @ Ash River is family owned, some from generation to generation. Many have lodges, bars, restraunts, many have nothing but peace and tranquility with cabins only and etc. The Kabetogama, and or Ash River tourism bureau and the Resort Locator above to see what resorts offer, price ranges and in most cases take a virtual tour. god luck, guts

Gravelle, I would recommend Birch Grove as a classic M&P resort. Elaine is a fine host.

Gravelle, once again, I will point out that Kabetogama and Ash River for the most part are all Ma & Pa type operations. Look at the Resort locator above for those areas and see what amenities you want, zero in on a few resorts and check out there websites from the Resort Locator link above and take a virtual tour.

Some of the resorts have great dock locations you can fish from or watch beautiful sunups and sundowns, some have great harbors to protect your boat, and etc.

Those months can be quite warm and buggy, some cabins have A/C and or ceiling fans, some have nice screened in porches and so forth. It is important to us up here that you have an enjoyable vacation so you return many times, good luck, guts

I concur with Guts, I've stayed at a couple on the kab and prefer the one I'm at now, but the Kab tourism web site list them on on ash river and kab. Finding a good mom and pop will be no problem, your shopping will be for the price you want and what ammenities you need.

I would say Fronteir Resort on the ash river, very freindly place and fun/interesting people. If you call tell them Big Jeff sent ya. It is family owned and operated and if you want a place where you will be taken care of like family. The are also very reasonable with cost and they have great food at the resort. Good breakfast and bloodies!!!

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
